Hi All, I am just starting on Lipotrim today and it's not with trepidation, but with excitement. I've been to my local pharmacy for my pre-diet weigh-in, and picked up my weekly supply and now I am raring to go. It's purely by chance that I found this product last week, after going to my GP and then to the chemist afterwards to pick up my prescription, that's when I saw their ads for Lipotrim. So I asked a couple of questions and took their leaflet, even borrowed a DVD to watch and learn more. Then I went home and did some research on the internet when I came across this site. I then spent the next two days reading this thread, and only got to about page 40 of 60-odd. That was more than enough to give me inspiration. So here I am starting my journey of discovery (and loss!), knowing a lot of the pitfalls but ready to try anyway. My only reservation is that this may be bad timing for me as I am going away for 2 weeks in mid-July, so really I will only be able to do two weeks Lipotrim followed by a week of re-feed, then away for my trip, to be followed by me re-starting when I get back. Normally I would have said I'll wait until I return but I am so determined not to give in to procrastination that I have decided to start now, and resume when I return. My overall aim is to lose four stone total (I am 14st 1lb and 5' 5"), getting down to 10, and also to lose as much as possible before my trip. My goal date is by September 1st. Anyhoo, just wanted to say hello, and I look forward to chatting with you. -Pete.
